Penguins Down 3 Games to 1

Well, the hockey situation has gone from troubled to dire. The Penguins lost Saturday night 2-1, and are now down three games to one in the best of seven series. If they lose again, their season is over. Very few teams have ever come from so far behind to win the Stanley Cup. Time to bring in the big guns.

Here are the Big Guns:

That’s right. I’m calling on all you Care Bears out there to point your little bellies in the direction of the Pittsburgh Penguins and give them a dose of the most powerful weapon known to man: The Care Bear Stare. The Pens could use a good boost of love and good cheer right about now. Remember when I defended you in the Care Bears vs Smurfs debate? Well, I need you to return the favor for me. Deal?

For those of you not familiar with the Care Bear Stare, here’s some video evidence of its awesome power:

If that isn’t inspirational enough, here’s the pre-game speech from the hockey movie Miracle. I get goose-bumps every time (the coach portrayed here, Herb Brooks, coached the Penguins one season in the 90’s).

  1. you know, care bears are only cute to those people who have not been subjected to hours and hours of movies and tv episodes of the bears and their carebear stares and hugs and goodiness.

    but I’ll give a care bear stare for you too if you would like! ;o)

  2. Lordy! I don’t even play ice hockey but I reckon he inspired me enough to go out and give it a go! Groovy trousers….
    3-1 down isn’t good but there is a first time for everything. If they win the next match, it’s 3-2 and that doesn’t sound half so bad…they CAN do it!I am practicing my best Care Bear stare. πŸ™‚

  3. You are one diehard fan, I’ll give you that. I’m way too pessimistic of a person to still be watching . . .

    I wish them the best . . . but prepare for the worst. Hey, at least they’ll be #2.

  4. Happy Birthday!

    Sorry about the hockey.
    Are you suggesting that your readers all point our bellies in a certain direction, and think really strong “go penguins” sorts of thoughts?

  5. Ello – They aren’t cute. They’re pure evil fighting machines. You do not want to be on the wrong side of a Care Bear. They’re bears, after all.

    Diane – Yeah, quite an inspirational speech. The movie is supposed to be set in the 1980s, so yeah the pants are unique πŸ™‚

    tysdaddy – it worked out last night πŸ™‚

    writinggb – the razor was ready but not used! πŸ™‚

    taffiny – yep, point your belly in the direction of Western PA please! πŸ™‚
